She graduated as a theatre director and economist. Between 1999 and 2014, Andrea served as art director, and later deputy director, of the British Council, dealing with socially committed community projects and corporate management. In 2004, she spent nine months as Head of Art Development in London, tasked with developing the British Council’s new arts strategy, to be implemented in the 110 countries in which the organisation is active. Between 2014 and 2022, she served as director of the Ludwig Museum’s International Department, as well as designer and curator of collaborative artistic projects. Andrea believes one of the most valuable directions in art and design is working with communities and utilising the social aspect of art and design tools.

Since 2018, she has been a student at the MOME Doctoral School, and also teaches as an assistant lecturer at the MOME Institute for Theoretical Studies. She is regularly invited to give talk on her field of research at other universities.
